I guess you can talk as tough as you want on a record and in interviews but at the arraignment it’s only entertainment. As hard as The Game has tried to be a “gangsta rapper” he doesn’t want anyone in his court case to know about it.
Gangster rapper The Game doesn’t want to be referred to as a gangster rapper anymore — but it’s not because he’s changing professions … it’s because he’s trying to win a court case.
The gangster rapper’s legal move is part of a lawsuit that was filed against him in 2008 — in which he’s being sued for allegedly punching a guy during a pickup basketball game and then pulling a gun on him.
In the new documents, the gangster rapper is asking the judge to 86 all references to him being a gangster or gangster rapper during the trial … because he’s afraid it would prejudice the jury against him.
In the docs, the gangster rapper also doesn’t want any mention of his lyrics during the trial … because they contain references to violence and profanity.
